I am a big James Jean fan, but still struggle to understand why he tends to hide his subjects in like half of his pieces...

Guess I hadn't really noticed (or thought of this) before. I consider it more of a blending/melding than hiding. With that being said, I find the perspective a bit odd on Forager III. At least that will be my excuse for likely not going for it.

What's up with JJ? Did he hire someone (new) to manage his career? Did he suddenly blow up real big in China or something? Not sure what they're thinking, but he/they had a plan for him and they've been executing it since the Eden release in June. First, price went from $250 to $500 (double up, that's not a small feat) and since the price hike, they've also been pumping out the timed editions at a higher rate. 4 timed editions in the last 7 months (he usually does what, 2-3 of these a year?). That's a lot of prints for anyone who wants one. At one point, and sooner rather than later, lots of people will have lots of excuses not going for the next one.

the price hike hasn't really affected the edition sizes too much. been pretty much 1k-1.5k for timed editions for the last few years.

no ability to do shows or other art installations so yeah...timed editions seem to be the avenue they are exploring every few months.

He’s definitely big in Asia. Not sure about China specifically but def places like Singapore, Korea, and Japan. All of which have rabid collectors with deep pockets.

My guess, 1.5k

I'm in for one. First one I've really liked for a bit now.
